Caveat emptor.Posted: June 27, 2011
Local cinema buffs are excited that Tree of Life is finally playing here in Birmingham, Alabama. But this is, by all accounts, not a movie for the meek. A theater in Connecticut has gone so far as to post a warning to inform customers that the movie “does not follow a traditional, linear approach to storytelling,” and that no refunds will be offered.
Maybe it’s time for a parallel movie ratings system… “This movie is rated ‘R’ for violence and foul language and ‘VS’ because only very smart people will enjoy it.”

Green Hornet isn’t as bad as The Spirit. But it is so bad that Stacey and I were only willing to suffer through it for 30 minutes before turning it off.
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure might be the archetypal 1980s flick. It ain’t high art, but the movie has a goofy charm that is hard to resist.
